The second in a series of three traditional towers, the building looks East to Lake Michigan and the Museums and West to Museum Park and the City. The tower’s language is rooted in Classic Chicago Style architecture with architectural details that reflect the vernacular of the surrounding Museum Campus. Some of these details include expansive windows with lintels on piers and a colonnade effect designed to provide texture, depth and shadow to the building’s exterior while fitting into the look of existing structures. The core of the building is defined by integrated bronze-tinted windows and regimented balconies placed within the mid-section’s formal colonnade. Extended cornices, Doric-proportioned columns, and horizontal belt-course are used to create the building’s bold top.
